Year Thirteen Students Achieve Outstanding Results at The Downs School - A Level Results Press Release

This year, 139 students sat A2 examinations at The Downs School. The students achieved 31% A*-A grades, 60% A*-B grades and 81% A*-C grades. The students have achieved an outstanding set of results, continuing to maintain The Downs School Sixth Form’s track record of high performance at A Level and BTEC.

Headteacher Chris Prosser said, “I am so proud of our students and their amazing achievements this year. These are outstanding results and there are so many wonderful success stories that lie beneath these statistics. What impresses me the most is that we are enabling our students to make real and sustained progress from the moment they enter our Sixth Form. This reaffirms our strong ethos of ‘challenge for all’. My biggest pleasure is knowing that so many of these students will now be able to access their chosen destinations, whether that will be university, apprenticeships or a career. I wish them all the best on their next adventure.”

Deputy Headteacher Phil Wilson said, “Our students have produced outstanding results and should be really proud of what they have achieved. They have been given a huge amount of support by their teachers and parents, but the success they have achieved really comes down to them and the amazing attitudes to learning they have shown as a year group.”
